Wood Elf strategy

by Milo Sharp (www.blood-bowl.net)

Wood-Elves

The Wood Elves are seldom seen outside their forests and glens, unless of course they’re playing an away game! Physically, they are very similar to their cousins, the High Elves, but have replaced arrogance and haughtiness with a deep and abiding love of nature and the forests.

The Dwarven Strategies

by Robert Koper (www.blood-bowl.net)

Dwarves

Today we will discuss a little about Dwarves and their strategy.

First, the Dwarves are hampered by two things – their low movement and their inability to get more than four ball handlers ( those with an agility of at least 3 ). This makes them a team that scores only once or twice in a game. This means that he Dwarves concentrate on Defense.

Iddy-Up...

Chaos-Dwarves

For the true competitor, if you’ve ever played in a Blood Bowl league before you’ll know that competitiveness radiates form every BB player. I see this in BB more than any other GW game. Maybe it’s because you only control eleven or so pieces (each with their own name!) and one tends to get attached to them as they increase their skills throughout the league play. The best, well-rounded team out there is the Chaos Dwarf team. Ah, ah, ah… now let me explain, Elf-lovers, let me explain… there are three reasons why this is true. Now, I know you’re saying they don’t have a thrower or a catcher. Well, that’s true but in league player durability and survivability play a bigger role in being competitive than finesse any day Elfy!

It's only a Game!

by Mike ‘Da Boffin’ Brooks (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

Mike is a sort of strange cross between a ‘skateboarding dude’ and a hippy. He’s sixteen and from Ipswich, where he regularly indulges in games of Blood Bowl, Necromunda, and Warhammer 40,000. Blood Bowl remains his first love, however, and he even has plans to write an article based on ‘Star Commentators’, including the sheepskin overcoat-wearing Halfling, John Mootson .. .. Groan!!!

Amazon Strategy

by unknown (FUMMBL)

Amazons

Though they are a lightly-armoured team, this is offset by all their players starting with Dodge. Amazons are best employed playing a fairly bashy, running game.

Narkotic's Skaven Guide

by Brownrob (FUMBBL)

Skaven

I started playing Skaven in our league for the last season. I never played Skaven so far but was surprised by my overall success. I won 9 out 10 games and became League Champion. On the road to success I played against Dwarves, Orcs, Dark Elfs, Lizardmen, Human and Chaos. I wanted to compile my experiences in this guide which is meant for vanilla LRB coaches, though we don’t use stars. Some of my statements could sound strange to you, so constructive criticism is – as always – welcome.

High Elf Tactics

by Robert Arnholm (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

High-Elves

The main problem with High Elves are the lack of Big Guys. All of the other team may begin with a big strong (stupid) guy, but not you. If your playing in a rough league with a lot Orcs, Chaos, Dwarfs and Undead teams this can be a problem. But remember, while you dont have an Armour Value[AV] of 9 you got somethine else.. With Agility 4 you can dodge out and minimize your opponents block opportunities. Overall the High Elves are fairly lowpowered, and their movment are generally insignifficant, but not that bad. With AV of 8 they can take a hit or two but they won’t survive in the long run.

Cunning, Conniving and Cruelty

by Stephan Babbage (Paradigm Central)

Dark-Elves

So you’re interested in our secrets eh? Well, come and meet a nice female dark elf I know. She’s just dying to meet you. :)

In all seriousness, Dark elves aren’t the easiest team to play. Some days they have the habit of just dying by ‘the sword’. In Blood Bowl, the sword is the block dice and the die 6 you roll. Dark elves live by the sword more than most teams. And if you live by the sword, you die by the sword – as the saying goes.

That being said the dark elves are a lot of fun. They are stubborn and cruel enough to hit some teams hard. They won’t last long in a big brawl, but they’ll make casualties as fast as a lot of teams. They also have enough skill and speed to race the fastest of the Blood Bowl teams.

But don’t get the idea that they’re the perfect team. Long term, you’re in for a fight – and will have to use more than your stat line to win a game.

The Basics

by Stephen Babbage with Coach Blacknife (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

To me, Blood Bowl is a fun strategy game: yes, the most important element is strategy. In our league a team winning by luck alone is very rare; obviously luck does affect gameplay and can help determine the outcome of a game, but if the Coach is not using strategies and intelligence to win then they’ll find it difficult.

Fertigkeit Rasend unter der Lupe

by Kohli (www.kohli.de)

General

Mit dem folgenden Artikel gehe ich auf die Fertigkeit Rasend genauer ein. Beim Blood Bowl kann sich diese Fertigkeit als äußerst nützlich erweisen. Für denjenigen aber, der unvorsichtig ist und sich gar nicht auskennt, kann auch damit ins offene Messer rennen.
